Posted: July 22nd, 2020 by phenne

I am excited to announce that I have been promoted to Associate Professor with tenure.

Remote learning

Posted: March 19th, 2020 by phenne

As part of the attempt to minimize the spread and impact of Covid-19, the University of Vermont has switched all classes to remote learning. For my two classes this semester, I am recording short videos as an overview of each lecture, and uploading the powerpoint slides with extensive notes. I am also using the Blackboard discussion boards to have conversation about the lectures during the regularly-scheduled class time. If anyone has questions on this, feel free to email me.

new media appearances

Posted: January 9th, 2020 by phenne

I had a few VT media appearances over the past week, discussing the latest events in Iran. I talked with Dave Gram about the impact of the US killing of Qassim Suleimani. I also talked with WCAX about the attack itself and Iran’s retaliation.

new book review

Posted: December 17th, 2019 by phenne

I have a review of Nilay Saiya’s Weapon of Liberty forthcoming in Nationalities Papers, and it is available through First View here. I think this is a great book, but worry about how to convince people who are skeptical of religion’s importance to read it.

new article in The Washington Post

Posted: December 16th, 2019 by phenne

I have a new article in the Washington Post’s “Monkeycage” feature, arguing that, instead of Saudi Arabia&the UAE pulling America into war with Iran, they may actually be restraining us. You can read it here.

new book review

Posted: December 6th, 2019 by phenne

I review Lee Marsden’s Religion and International Security in the latest issue of Global Change, Peace and Security. You can read it here.

new piece with Brookings/Berkley Center

Posted: June 17th, 2019 by phenne

I wrote a commentary piece for the Brookings Institute/Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs’ “geopolitics of religious soft power project.” This project explores how states use religion in their foreign policies, and my contribution looks at America and Russia, drawing on research for my new book project. It is available here.

new forthcoming publication

Posted: May 30th, 2019 by phenne

I’m excited to announce that I have a new article forthcoming in Terrorism and Political Violence. “Assessing the impact of the Global War on Terrorism on terrorism threats in Muslim countries” uses data from my book to assess whether Muslim states’ cooperation with America on counterterrorism helped or hurt when it came to terrorist threats. I find that it actually seemed to help; states that cooperated with the United States experienced a drop in deaths from terrorist attacks. I have a working paper available on my website, and will update it when the final article becomes available.

Awarded new grant

Posted: April 1st, 2019 by phenne

I’m excited to receive one of the project launch grants from Notre Dame’s Global Religion Research Institute. This is a great initiative supporting new research on religion around the world. The grant will support my work applying social network analysis to assess the state of Islamic and secular politics in the Middle East. I presented preliminary work on this project at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association, and will present more of this work at the Political Networks conference and the American Political Science Association annual meeting.
